News from the Benches: Coombes lab identifies a D-Alanine transporter
New work from the Coombes lab has identified a novel ABC transporter in Salmonella that transports D-alanine from the periplasm to the bacterial cytoplasm. This research was lead by PhD student Suzanne Osborne, with collaboration from Brian Tuinema, Pui Sai Lau and Ana Tomljenovic from the Coombes lab along with our strong team of collaborators at McMaster and Newcastle University in the UK. The research is set to be published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
This research was supported by an operating grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
